The Blanc du Château Vieux Taillefer is a cuvée that revives the history of the right bank of Bordeaux. This blend of five different grape varieties, a singular wine blended in majority with Merlot Blanc. It comes from a plot located in Saint-Christophe des Bardes, on a limestone soil , in the heart of the Saint-Emilion appellation. Grown from 75 year old vines. Today we own the only existing white Merlot vines of the appellation. This blend is vinified and matured in slightly toasted new oak barrels from the Center- France region. Our barrels are 300 liters and shaped like cigars.

This wine is distinguished by its singularity, but above all by the floral notes that emerge on the first nose, beautiful bitterness, and a salinity. This is specific to the great limestone soils where the very best French whites are produced.

Although it comes from the Saint-Emilion appellation, we have decided to produce it as a “vin de table”.

We produce about 2000 bottles of the Blanc du Château Vieux Taillefer every year.
